The Cottages at Bethany
If you are ready for a “maintenance-free” living opportunity within steps of an entire Community of Care, then Independent Living at The Cottages at Bethany, is the answer to your quandary. In 2019, the Board of Trustees by faith embarked on yet another quest to meet the Mission to “Serve” in the expansion of the continuum of care by the provision of Independent Living on the same campus as the Assisted Living Community of Care provided through The Lodge at Bethany. Phase I of the decision to expand into Independent Living was completed in November of 2019 and since that time, the nine (9) Cottages that were completed have been blessed to have full occupancy. Phase II has since been completed, offering an additional fourteen (14) Cottage homes. Each Cottage is a single-story, handicapped accessible 1205-1300 square foot residence, and provides all-inclusive pricing to give the Residents the independence they choose and the assurance that any needs for future assistance will be on the same campus.
Our spacious Cottage floor plan combines elegance and comfort in a setting of the lush landscaped Community of Care on the Bethany campus, creating a neighborhood of friends and the safety of family. Every Cottage includes the following amenities:
WHY CHOOSE THE COTTAGES?
Your one-time fee includes preferential admission to the Lodge at Bethany-the only certified assisted living facility in Statesboro.
The Community Commons Building
We are pleased to announce the construction of a beautiful 4,000 square foot building in the midst of Phase II of The Cottages; The Community Commons Building. Designed and built to meet a need for those in Independent Living to have a place to engage and interact with other Residents of the Bethany Community as well as the Community of Statesboro and surrounding counties as a whole.
Becky D. Livingston, former CEO for Bethany, commented: “We are equally excited about the construction and the impact that The Community Commons at Bethany building will provide in continuation of our legacy of innovation in Senior Living. The collaborative work of an exceptional design and construction team, including Greg McKenzie Builders of Vidalia, Georgia (who also completed the original nine Cottages of Phase I and now has completed the fourteen additional Cottages of Phase II) represents the effort to bring a common space for the individuals that live on the Bethany campus as well as other visitors who may come to our campus and enjoy the benefits and opportunities for support and engagement targeted towards Seniors. In conjunction with targeted support from leaders in the Senior Community who are providing services and encouragement such as the St. Joseph’s/Candler Institute for Neurosciences Movement Disorders Program, Virtual Dementia Tour©, Coastal Plain Therapy & Wellness, as well as others, we have the opportunity to offer resources that will benefit those who are following the Journey and meeting the challenges of growing older.”
